Baloo is doing fine, he loves the snow and ice and has a few "dog" buddies here in the neighborhood. He weighs in at 31#lbs. now. Baloo is becoming a great friend.Happy Thanksgiving everyone ! you can veiw Baloo's pics in the pic forum look under Mitt.
And he almost matches the couch!! As beautiful dog and you are both lucky to have found one another.
Pat thats his couch now. But he does share it with us.He also gets his share of the bed at night.He never had a chance to experiance what close human contact was, he has now, and when he needs moved he is like a sack of potatos,he is limp like a wet dish towle.I think he enjoys it! I would also like to mention here that I have read a few posts about BRAT and the way things get handled at BRAT. I can tell all of you that this organization is FIRMLY commited to doing what is right for the placement of thier rescues. I know about the Fanconi syndrome and will have Baloo tested when he sees the vet.I have lived a blessed life and I have had my share of problems.I know this much life does not come with guarentees and any pet is subject to that as well.We all need to do the best we can,and when someone sees us falling short of that goal we need to ask ourselves how we can contribute a plan to correct it instead of hurling complaints at one another.We as humans all need to be heard and aknowledged for what we have to say.And we on the recieving end of a ideal or statement need to aknowledged as well, but in the end we all need to respect our own and other's point of view.
When I first posted to this forum I wanted to find a healthy pup.A Great Gal by the name Sharron Hurlbut suggested that I contact BRAT. I did and before I knew it I was in contact about several Basenji's.I filled out the application had a home visit talked hours to Barbara McShea about this brindle named Baloo.Well to make a long story short, Baloo, the BRAT rescue is at his forever home with his new family.He is the coolest looking and most dearful Basenji we have ever seen! I have to Thank BRAT,Barbara McShea.Sharron Hurlbut,Carrol[home visit] my Michigan BRAT Co-Ord and the countless people that make BRAT what it is and everyone that has responded to my threads here at Basenji forums. This is truley a success story of a BRAT rescue.I would encourage anyone looking for a Basenji to look into BRAT. These beautiful little creatures need homes and it is up to us as loving caring people to make sure that we do all we can for any pup needing a quality life.BOB BARKER would be proud for that I am sure.
